三途の河。

此世と彼世を繋ぐ距離無限大の大河である

小野塚小町の仕事場でもあるのだが…
The Sanzu River.

A large, infinitely wide river that connects the world of the living to the world of the dead.

It's also the workplace of Komachi Onozuka...
映姫「やはりここに居ましたね…。報告に来ないと思ったら…!」

小町「あ、あははは。いやまぁその…。ついうっかり酔魔が…」

映姫「…まぁそれは置いておくとして。小町、異変の経過報告を」
Eiki "I knew you'd be here...Just when I thought you wouldn't be coming to report in...!"

Komachi "Ah, ahahaha. Well, I mean...I was just careless and got drunk, is all..."

Eiki "...Let's just leave it at that. Komachi, I need you to give me a progress report concerning the incident."
小町「えー。門殊堂の連中は謹慎処分と業務停止命令。

   そして裏で関与していた畜生界については現在調査中。
   怨霊通貨は旧地獄の核融合炉で処分された様ですが…。
   妖精に持ち去られたコインは未回収のままですねぇ」

映姫「ふむ、ここまでやれば十分でしょう。…ご苦労様でした」
Komachi "Alright then. The folks over at Monjudou were suspended and ordered to cease working.

   And the Animal Realm is currently under investigation for its involvement behind the scenes.
   The Onryou Currency seems to have been disposed of in Former Hell's fusion reactor...
   The coins that the fairies collected have yet to be retrieved, however."

Eiki "Hmm...I think we've done enough here. Thank you for your time."
小町「ところで四季様、あたいも四季様に

   聞きたい事があるんですが、いいですかい?」

映姫「いいですよ。どうぞ」

小町「博麗の巫女に聞いてみた所、今回の異変

   かなりの人妖が関わってるみたいじゃないですか」
Komachi "By the way, Miss Shiki, I also want to ask you

some questions, if that's ok?"

Eiki "It's fine. Go ahead."

Komachi "I enquired the Hakurei shrine maiden, and it seems that quite a few

humans and youkai were involved in the incident."
映姫「えぇ。解決役の人間は貴女含めて四人居ましたが」

小町「そこなんですよ。聞きたい所は。
   他は人間なのに何故"死神"のあたいまで含まれてるのか」

映姫「ふむ。自分が抜擢された理由を知りたい、という事ですね

   安心なさい、ちゃんとした理由が二つあります」
Eiki "Yes, there were four people, including yourself."

Komachi "That's what I wanted to ask you about.
All the others who went out were human, so why did I, a shinigami, have to get involved?"

Eiki "Hmm...So you want to know why you were selected, yes?

   Not to worry, I have two good reasons for that."
小町「それは一体…」

映姫「まず前提として、幻想郷中に溢れた謎の銭の正体が

   怨霊を半端に溶かして固めた怨霊通貨である事は判ってますね」
Komachi "And those would be...?"

Eiki "First off, let's assume the mysterious coins that had been flooding various

parts of Gensokyo are the 'Onryou Currency' created by melting down vengeful spirits and hardening then."
小町「…そうですね」

映姫「その通貨に残った怨嗟、つまり厄を祓う為には
   霊撃の形で開放するのが一番効果的だった。これが一つ」

小町「それが"アシスト霊撃"だったという事ですかい?」

映姫「そうね。後一つは小町の"宵越しの銭は持たない"性格です。

   これがアシスト霊撃の仕組みと非常に相性が良かった」
Komachi "...Right."

Eiki "The most effective way to purge the resentment held in the coins--that is, misfortune--
is to release it in the form of a Spirit Strike. That's reason one."

Komachi "You're talking about the 'Assist Spirit Strike', right?"

Eiki "Right. The other reason is that you, Komachi, have the disposition of someone who's liberal with her money.

This resonates quite well with the Assist Spirit Strike mechanic."
小町「あー、じゃあ出し惜しみする様な性格だった場合は…」

映姫「厄が溜まり続けて、不調をきたしていたでしょうね。

   加工されていたとしても、怨霊は怨霊ですから」
Komachi "Ah, right. So if someone's known for being reluctant to hand out their money, then..."

Eiki "Then they'd be in in bad condition due to the constant accumulation of evil.

   A vengeful spirit is a vengeful spirit, no matter how you process it."
映姫「金に対して無欲かつ腕が立つ人間なら、

   別に考慮する必要はないのですが…」

小町「あー。そりゃ無理ですねぇ。特にあの巫女は」
Eiki "If you're a human who's selfless and skillful with their money, then you

won't need to take this into account. However..."

Komachi "Ah, that scenario's not possible. Especially in that shrine maiden's case..."
映姫「でしょう?だから貴女を解決役に選んだの。納得した?」

小町「えぇまぁ、十分納得出来ました。これで昼も眠れます」

映姫「…貴方の昼寝はいつもの事でしょうに、全く。

   無欲すぎるのも考え物ですね。いいですかそもそも貴女は」
Eiki "Wouldn't you agree? That's why I chose you to solve the incident. Are we clear?"

Komachi "Yeah, you have me convinced. This'll help me with my daytime naps."

Eiki "...I'm fairly certain that those naps are a regular occurrence.

   Being too selfless is also a bad thing, right? You know you're not the first one, don't you?"
うっかり口を滑らしていつものようにお小言を貰う小町。

ワザとやっているのではなかろうなと映姫に詰め寄られるが…
本当は、異変解決役に抜擢された事への照れ隠しなのかもしれない

Ending No.10 まぁこの後に天界侵略騒ぎが起きるんですけどね

ノーコンテニュークリアおめでとう!
Komachi had inadvertently let her tongue slip, and thus got lectured as usual.

Eiki had pressed her to make sure that her remarks weren't on purpose, but...
Perhaps she was also hiding her embarrassment at being the one to solve the incident.

Ending No.10 - It would seem that an uproar concerning Heaven being invaded would occur after this.

Congrats on a No-Continue Clear!
